Avoid Hurricanes – Try Curacao

Tips for Traveling During Hurricane Season

You’re crazy excited about your well planned and expensive Caribbean vacation & then… a Huff & a Puff… blown away by a big bad hurricane!*&%$?

Well, Practical, Fiddler and Fifer, not all Caribbean islands are prey to the Big Bad Hurricane Wolf.

In a nutshell:  Hurricane season (June thru November) rarely hits below the belt (the hurricane belt that is), and Curaçao is definitely below, leaving it a prime place to land – and avoid those pesky vacation-ruining hurricanes!

So, where to stay to avoid hurricanes?

With Tranquility Tubs, private pools, butler service, 9 restaurants and 10 bars, a Red Lane Spa, access to the neighboring 18-hole Pete Dye championship golf course, and MINI Coopers (complimentary for guests to drive while exploring) – not to mention 70 nearby dive sites (and Sandals includes diving!), you may never want to go home.

If you get bored relaxing on the amazing beaches of Curacao, you can take in some culture with a complimentary shuttle to the colorful capital city of Willemstad and enjoy its European influence. Curacao is also world-famous for its unspoiled beaches and coves, 65 amazing dive sites, and exotic marine ecosystems.

Oh, and be sure to ask the locals about:

  • Mikvé Israel-Emanuel Synagogue
  • Christoffel National Park
  • Shete Boka National Park
  • The Kurá Hulanda Museum
  • Traditional folkloric Curaçaoan waltz
  • Rock Climbing at the Three Brothers
  • Blue Lizards and
  • Green Rum (shiver my timbers)

About Stevie McQueene 9 Articles
Now that her kids are grown, Stevie McQueene is enjoying her second life as an writer who is willing to go anywhere for a good story, but prefers that "anywhere" be an all-inclusive resort and the "good story" to be one about spas. Or food. Or wine. Or some combination of those three. When not doing 'research' from a beach chair, Stevie can usually be found satisfying her daily salt intake requirements in the ocean waves, or a bottomless margarita.
